# 8 awg (american wire gauge) wire minimum, although #6 is preferred.
Both a 45 amp and 50 amp breaker would require 6 AWG wire. So if you have 6 AWG wire and any devices like an outlet are rated at 50 amps or greater you are okay.
6 AWG wire
# 6 gauge.
Yes as long as you change the 50 amp breaker to a 15 amp breaker. You will be hard pressed to get the 50 amp #6 wire under the terminals of the 15 amp receptacle.
From a 40 amp breaker, standard ranges have a three conductor #8 copper wire installed, terminating in a three pole four wire grounding receptacle. NEMA number 14-50R. Usually a 50 amp double throw breaker will do with 6 gauge wire
Not legally because the rating of the 30 amp receptacle would have a 50 amp breaker ahead of it. If you reduced the feed breaker to 30 amps and still use the #6 wire, this would be within the electrical code rules.
A #6 copper conductor with an insulation factor of 75 or 90 degrees C is rated at 65 amps.
A 30 amp breaker run 75 feet would require you use AWG #10 wire. But, an oven normally pulls more that 30 amps and I would not use #10 wire on a 30 amp breaker for an oven. Normally any newer oven is wired with AWG #6 gauge wire on a 50 amp circuit breaker so the breaker will not trip during heavy use of the oven. Some older ovens could use a #8 wire on a 40 amp breaker.
50 amp breaker wired with AWG # 6 wire.
50 amp breaker.
Normally a new kitchen stove will require a 50 amp breaker wired with AWG # 6/3 with ground wire.
A 60 amp circuit would normally have a #6 size wire, which is what is normally run for a stove, which is typically on a 50 amp 2 pole breaker for the normal home stove. The distance of the wire run might require a bigger size wire if it is very long.
more like 6 gauge
A 50 amp breaker is an overcurent device.
It should take a two pole (220V) 50 amp breaker and matching plug wired with # 8 or # 6 gauge wire. Check your manual.
Yes. A 30 amp rated dryer can be served by a 50 amp rated circuit. There is no requirement to change the breaker to 30 amps, but it is best to do so.
Yes.Additional InformationBreakers and fuses protect the wires to prevent fire. The 100 Amp breaker in the meter base (main) protects the wire from the meter base to the breaker panel. The 50 Amp breaker in the breaker panel protects the wire from the breaker panel to the outlet. Sometimes the 100 amp main breaker is located in the panel.If you are asking "Can you use two 50 amp breakers for the main breakers with a 100 amp service, then yes you can. The National Electrical Code allows you to use up to 6 breakers as the main overcurrent protection.
A stove is a two pole 50, and hot water heater i would recommend the same.
